The Geneva auto show will take place next February, a spokesperson for the event confirmed, ending months of speculation around one of Europe's biggest and longest-running auto shows.
The exhibition will run from Feb. 19 to 27 in its traditional home in the Palexpo convention center exhibition halls near Geneva airport.
In 2020, the show was one of the first major events to be cancelled as the coronavirus pandemic spread through Europe. This year's show was also dropped because of the uncertain situation over COVID and automakers reluctance to commit to taking part.
In an email to Automotive News Europe, a spokesperson for the event organizers, the Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS), confirmed that the show has been given the green light.
Additional details would follow soon, the spokesperson said.
No information about potential exhibitors will be released yet, the spokesperson added.
Last month, GIMS, alongside representatives from Qatar Tourism, announced plans to hold a Middle East version of the Geneva show in Doha, Qatar’s capital, in autumn 2023.
The show will be held at the at Doha Exhibition & Convention Center and will take place every two years, while the Geneva show would continue to take place annually, they said.
